Why Credit Unions Choose Alessa for Sanctions Screening

Screen Against the Latest Global Sanctions, Watchlists and PEP Lists

Powered by RZOLUT, Alessa utilizes global sanctions lists, politically exposed persons (PEP) lists, adverse media, watchlists and your internal lists to ensure your credit union’s screening program is populated with the latest, most accurate data. Alessa’s full coverage and timely updates give credit unions assurance that they are not conducting business with risky entities.

Robust PEP Screening Capabilities

Alessa makes it easy to identify domestic and foreign PEPs who may expose your credit union to an elevated risk of bribery, corruption, or money laundering. Our matching engine uses sophisticated algorithms and machine learning to analyze matches in context.

A Proprietary PEP Scoring Model That Reduces False Positives

Our proprietary PEP Scoring Model categorizes, and scores matches, allowing you to focus on high-risk PEPs. Medium and low-risk PEPs can be auto-resolved or placed in a workflow for your manual review. On average, this method reduces your PEP-related workload by as much as 50% each day.

Real-Time and Periodic Screening

With Alessa, entities can be screened in three ways: real-time, periodic or on-demand. Real-time sanctions screening is ideal for onboarding and transaction verification processes that require an immediate response. Periodic screening allows credit unions to screen or re-screen any number of customers on a schedule or in response to changing information. Your compliance team can also run on-demand screening whenever necessary.

Reduced Sanctions and PEP Screening Costs

Pay only for the screening data you use. We won’t charge you to check bundled sanctions lists that aren’t relevant to your screening needs. Alessa provides a targeted, cost-effective screening solution that saves you up to 40% compared to other screening data providers.

Ongoing Support and Expertise

With Alessa, benefit from continuous expert guidance and ongoing support. Our Support and RegTech experts help to ensure your AML program remains robust, up-to-date and compliant.

Insightful Watchlist and Sanctions Screening Software for Credit Unions

Alessa uses current sanction lists, OFAC, law enforcement, PEPs, adverse media, crypto, and your own internal high-risk lists to provide expansive insights into the risks associated with any customer or entity.

How Does Our PEP Scoring Work?

It’s simple.

 

Each night Alessa runs your credit union’s client list against the latest PEP lists and assigns an updated risk score to any PEP in your database. The PEPs whose scores surpass your organization’s risk tolerance are then highlighted and brought to your team’s attention for investigation.

 

Alessa can either auto-resolve low and/or medium risk PEP alerts or create a separate work queue for lower risk alerts based on your organization’s risk preference.
